Supreme Court Case

Supreme Court Case

Supreme Court Case

In order to preserve and protect its independence, Grove City College refused federal student aid beginning in the mid-1980s. As a result, Grove City College argued its case in the landmark Supreme Court Case, Grove City College v. Bell. Today, the College remains a beacon of laissez-faire economic freedom in the United States.

Central to the College's identity is a spirit of independence. That spirit extends into every area of Grove City College life, including academic and financial independence. Against federal government oversight of our academic programs and finances, Grove City College is only one of a handful of institutions in the United States to refuse all federal funding.
